Thanks Booker. I also see the Japs haven't paid any war reparations or apologies either.

From what I have read, the USS Arizona had full fuel bunkers when it was sunk. Only a small amount of the oil has leaked out of the battleship. The fear is that one day a fuel bunker will break up from an earthquake or for some other reason and release hundreds of thousands of gallons of fuel oil into the harbor.

And so it goes.....

i was stationed at schofield bks hi 25th inf div. on oahu hi in 1976 and i went to pearl harbor and to the arizona memorial. when you stand there and look down at the ship and you see the names and the oil comeing up thats when it hits you. freedom is not free and you walk away humbled by the experience.

We were in Hawaii in the year 2000, we went to the memorial and what a sobering experience. It was amazing to still see the oil coming up, but to think of all the men that are entombed there, I admit it brought me to tears. God Bless Them Everyone.
